Ambassador of Nepal to India Deep Upadhyay has thanked India profusely for the quick reaction by the government. Addressing the media he said “it is only because of the assistance from India that we have managed build such a rescue operation. Within an hour I was lucky to get calls from Prime Minister and Home Minister and in sometime from Delhi chief minister as well. Within seven hours Indian rescue teams reached there. Here we are trying to give information, support and collection of relief material here”.
He also said that the Nepal government has already opened bank accounts for donations and from Delhi and Kolkata office the Nepalese mission is trying to send relief material directly to the affected areas.
He also thanked Indian defence forces engaged in the rescue and relief operations. He said “thankful to Air force and government of India that they are helping us with choppers to air drop food. Most of the relief materials are going from India. Since airport has limited space so would request flights to not spend more than three hours at the air port. Tents, trapulins, medicines, etc we request for donation”.
